Default Re: Thread about adult learners

I see now. I thought he was talking about classical musicians or rock musicians or jazz musicians taking up the pipes as adult learners, or maybe the reverse of that.

For sure an adult learner will likely not have the lightning-quick fingers of a youth learner, and will have better initial success with 4/4 marches and retreats and slow marches. Playing competition 2/4 marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs, and hornpipes will take some time.
